Modular synth supergroup Node – made up producer Flood, producer and composer Ed Buller, Doctor of Music Dave Bessell, and Hollywood film composer Mel Wesson – has released Live at the Royal College of Music, a Blu-ray concert video of one of their rare live performances.
Node performs and records with large-format modular synthesizers. The performance features each of the musicians performing with a collection of classic modern and vintage gear.
Node’s performance was released on CD and digital formats in 2018 as the album Node Live and features new music in the tradition of 70’s electronic music pioneers like Tangerine Dream.
Now the Blu-ray release promises a behind-the-synths view of the performance.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“Appearances of Node live are incredibly rare, but when they happen they unleash their full ‘shock and awe’ arsenal of vintage analogue synths in a stage performance that is played entirely in real time.
Featuring probably the largest collection of such synthesizers ever gathered on a single stage, this is a rare opportunity to hear these vintage machines in full flight handled by masters of the art.
Released as a limited edition of 500 – when they are gone they are gone.”
- Dave Bessell: guitar and modulars
- Ed Buller: sequencing and modulars
- Flood: Basso Profundo and modulars
- Mel Wesson: VCS3, PPG and modulars
